POTD Day 158: Pumpkins!

It is me versus the slugs and the slugs are winning! :( The smallest pumpkin in the patch (not pictured...) is totally hollowed out by the little suckers. I sort of thought that, if I gave them that little one (HUGE to them...), that they would leave the hearty ones alone. NOT. That big one you see, our pride and joy here at Hacienda #5, has a few bite marks by the slugs. I will have to put some beer out for them to party out on that instead.. Still, even thought they may not make it to Halloween, it is pretty neat to have pumpkins growing in my own yard!



  1. Pretty pumpkins! My mom and dad had slug issues too in their garden, i will have to tell them about the beer trick! :)

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. How fun! Well, not the slugs... I agree they're not cool. I like that you have pumpkins growing... and I like how you've captured them here! =D

  3. What a gorgeous photo! I hope the pumpkins survive the slugs, I think it's pretty neat that you have pumpkins growing! Maybe I'll try it next year.

    And thank you for your sweet comment WEEKS ago on my blog. I'm so sorry I took so long to come say hi... too much happened all at once, but I'm here now... so HI!!
